Did You Know?


The idea for the show came from Conan O'Brien, who thought of Marge getting a job at the power plant and that Mr. Burns has a crush on her. See more »


Lisa says both Marie Curie and Pierre Curie died of radiation poisoning. While this is what happened to Madame Curie, Mr. Curie was killed when he was run over by a cart. This is one goof the writers admitted to greatly regret. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the episode where the wolf attacks the school, Bart is trying to get out of a test. In the original version, he claims he has Tourette's syndrome and breaks into an alternate voice "Shove it, witch." In syndication the disease is changed to rabies, earlier versions containing the "witch" quote, and later versions omitting it entirely. See more »

Homer and Marge working together at the Power Plant? Blame it on Tibor
5 January 2012 | by athomedSee all my reviews

This episode is about the Simpson family house having foundation problems. Marge gets a job at the Power Plant to pay for the necessary repairs. Things get complicated when Mr. Burns becomes obsessed with her.

There are a lot of things to like about this episode. Both Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz make an appearance. Tom Jones is one of the greatest musical guest stars they've had on the show, and was supposedly a joy to work with. This is also a great Mr. Burns episode. Groundskeeper Willie has a very funny part as well.

Season 4 has great episode after great episode. This is certainly one of them.
